You see this fellow wannasurfers? These locals ARE NOT as hokie as they sound? - Don't let that 'southern tang' dialect of an english speaking sotuherner's accent fool ya! These dudes admit that this place is ultr-crowded 7 days/week!! Where's the hot shots of the spot then? They are more protected than a Manatee is!!! If it's a 5 star spot then ther simply HAS to be photographic proof of it somewhere, coz u can't believe that w/ALL the locals who surf there that NONE OF THEM HAS A CAMERA!!!! Shhh!!!!!(it's a secret...)
